I work in a Brisbane city business where my boss has installed 3 x CCTV cameras with audio. We know he using these cameras to listen in to conversations. My understanding is the audio recording is illegal (as is the video since he doesn’t have signs up). Am I right to assume this and what is the best course of action?

You have to work out what works for you.
